Survey Suggests Rural Seniors Face Challenges from Medicare Part D Preferred Pharmacy Drug Plans
Date:2/7/2013

iles. The [NAME] plan has no preferred pharmacy within 20-plus miles. Patients do not want to drive that far or use mail order, it's that simple."
  • "Patients are confused. In this case, they must travel 20-30 miles to the nearest preferred pharmacy as we reside in a rural area. We aren't given the opportunity to be a preferred pharmacy. Patients are frustrated and don't understand why they have to pay a higher co-pay to come to their local pharmacy and have their prescriptions filled by people they know and trust."
  • "Some elderly have to arrange transportation because of fear of driving freeways. Also wait times are in excess of an hour at some preferred pharmacies, therefore people providing the transportation are also unwilling to service the elderly."
  • "We are the only pharmacy in the county and patients then have to drive 70 miles round-trip to get to a preferred pharmacy."
  • "We live in a rural area with only two independent pharmacies. The nearest chain pharmacies are over 40 miles away. We have several patients who can now no longer afford to get their medication filled at my pharmacy (a non-preferred pharmacy) but do not have transportation to get to a preferred pharmacy."
  • "The nearest preferred pharmacy in the new [NAME] network is either 20 miles north, in a different state, or 20 miles south, in a different county."
  • The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA®) represents the interests of America's community pharmacists, including the owners of more than 23,000 independent community pharmacies. Together they represent an $88.5 billion health care marketplace, dispense nearly 40% of all retail prescriptions, and employ more than 300,000 individuals, including over 62,000 pharmacists. To learn more go to www.ncpanet.org or read NCPA's blog, The Dose, at http://ncpanet.wordpress.com/.
